    Ariel a 10 month old Americana who seems to be doing poorly. She's lethargic and kind of unsteady on her feet. She did lay an egg yesterday and seemed fine this morning.
    This evening, she has her tail and wings drooping and seems a bit wobbly on her feet.

    I'm going to give her some water just to make sure she stays hydrated.

    She does not appear injured, all parts work and seem to do so w/out pain. No visible signs of any injuries at all.

    This is out of the blue.

    perhaps put a small amount of sugar in her water? idk, that's what they say to do to baby chicks that appear lethargic when you get them in the mail. if you have any quik chick on hand, or any vitamin supplemets for chickens, you might try that as well... i hope she'll be okay!
